Pupils at Magdalene House Preparatory School were among 7,000 boys and girls from around the nation performing in one of the largest school choir concerts in the world at Young Voices 2015.

The 36-strong Wisbech choir sang everything from The Beatles to Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Youngsters were asked to bring tins of food for the FareShare Charity and this year the participants were supporting Save the Children.

The preparatory school’s director of music, Marie Cunningham, said: “The atmosphere in the arena was amazing – and when the lights dimmed and the children shone their torches it really was quite magical.

“We are exceptionally proud of the pupils’ dedication and commitment. Their singing was superb and it was a very tired but exhilarated group of young voices which returned to Magdalene House after an unforgettable day.”
